fisher, margaret fordDr. Margaret Ford Fisher calls her new book, “Learning for Ownership” the next progressive movement of the 21st century designed to help pre-K – 16 educators prepare students for academic and personal  success.

The first in a three-part series, the book provides practitioners with the tools to teach vastly heterogeneous populations of students.

Her debut book in the series focuses on Empowering African American Students for Success In the Twenty-First Century.

The second book will be available soon and addresses the educational preparation and empowerment of Latino students.

The third book in the series is a long-term review of Learning for Ownership Best Practices and students’ transitional pathways.

Fisher’s interest in research, to enhance student learning outcomes, began in 1973, as assistant professor of Ethnic/Minority Studies at Wichita State University.

Her research intensified at the University of Houston as she explored Dr. James Banks’ Typology of Ethnicity. Using his typology, she developed the teacher/student interaction instrument and worked closely with scholars in  multicultural education  to collect and analyze data.

Her insightful new book is transformational and has been described as a “Must Read for Educators.” The book can be ordered at  Tate Publishing, Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

Fisher can be booked for speaking engagements to work with educators, parents, and students in professional development workshops or seminar sessions to discuss her educational model and curriculum.
